Forum: etree Subject: Ogg Vorbis support in portable digital music players

No, it's not true. There are portable digital music players that support Ogg Vorbis. Xiph's wiki keeps a list of them at http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/PortablePlayers so if you're in the market for buying one (or buying another one, for those of you who already own a portable digital music player), check out this list.

Rio's Karma, for example, can play Ogg Vorbis and FLAC files.

I plan to get a Neuros device because not only does it play Ogg Vorbis, it also records CD-quality WAV files (via line-in or mic input), and it has free software firmware. I can learn how to program it and add functionality to it. There are some other users who have already done this and I hear that someone is working on adding FLAC support (it would be neat to record to FLAC so you can get almost twice the storage space without losing any quality).
